We believe that if we want to succeed at raising bilingual readers, we need to offer them books that are a pleasure to read.
In other words, leer es divertido cuando el libro está bueno. Reading is fun when the book is good. If not, why bother. To that end, our mission is to build a Spanish-language collection that children of all ages will find fascinating. Our books are visually stimulating, thought provoking and culturally relevant.
We have a diverse selection of original and hard-to-find board books, picture books, beginning readers, chapter books, comics and activity books. Our nonfiction titles explore topics popular with young readers, and a selection of Common Core-related material seeks to aid teachers in dual-language/immersion programs.
We work with publishers from Spain, Latin America and the United States to keep our selection as diverse as possible. We strive to bring authentic fiction that is hard to find in popular bookstores.

Who's behind this
Ximena Diego is an Argentine mother and journalist raising two bilingual children in New York City. In May 2016, she decided to combine her passion for children’s literature and her knowledge of the Spanish-language publishing industry to start an exciting collection of books that would make reading in Spanish engaging and exciting.
What's in a name
¡Chau, Luna! (Bye-Bye, Moon!) celebrates that magic moment in childhood when we discover that the moon is a loyal companion, a light that is always there, shining bright amid all the darkness. The good book, to me, is that light. —Ximena
